Hikvision PIR curtain detector
Hikvision wireless PIR curtain detector is intended for indoor installation in locations such as living rooms, kitchens, hallways, bedrooms or for use in office buildings.
The PIR curtain detector has the model number DS-PDC15-EG2-WE and is a fully secured wireless two-way detector with motion detection, tamper protection, low battery control and connection control. It can operate for up to 5 years from a built-in battery. It ignores animals while recognizing humans from the first step.
Detection range of the DS-PDC15-EG2-WE
The Hikvision PIR curtain detector can check an area of 15 metres from the sensor for movement at an angle of 6.3 degrees. This detector is therefore ideal for securing very specific areas, for example along windows or doors. In the rest of the room you can still walk around freely without the detector seeing you. It can be ideal to secure the windows of your living room at night, for example, but that you can still walk around freely in the living room yourself.
The sensitivity is adjustable via the Hik-Connect application on your smartphone. There are a total of 3 settings, high sensitivity, normal and animal friendly. The latter should be chosen if there are cats or dogs in the room to be secured. Pets up to 30KG are not detected in this mode.
Range from the Hikvision Hub
The range from the Hub to the Hikvision PIR curtain detector DS-PDC15-EG2-WE is 1,600 meters in open field. The connection is continuously monitored by the Hikvision Cloud. If the wireless signal is deliberately disturbed it will be immediately reported via the Hik-Connect app on your smartphone. The wireless Hikvision signal is called Tri-X, and operates on 2 different frequencies in the 868mhz band and has AES-128 encryption.
The ideal height to mount the PIR curtain detector is between 2.40 metres and 3.60 metres. If you have pets, we recommend a height of at least 2.4 metres. At this height a dog of maximum 30 kilograms can walk around freely without triggering the alarm. If you mount the PIR curtain detector lower than the recommended height, it will respond more quickly to pets and will also reduce the detection distance of 15 metres. Of course all installation supplies are included.
Login and assembly
All Hikvision products are easy to connect. Registration is done with a QR code on each device. Put the Hik-Connect app in the “Enroll” position and you can start adding products by scanning the QR code in the app.
Mount the detector on a wall without disassembling it. Make sure there are no vases, cabinets or glass objects blocking the angle of view. And you’re done. Don’t forget that the ideal location for this internal PIR detector is in the corners of your home. Because of its detection angle, it can secure an entire room at this location.
Settings of the Hikvision PIR curtain detector
In addition to setting the sensitivity, you can make a number of other adjustments. For example, you can choose to use the detector as a doorbell function. As soon as someone walks through the imaginary curtain you will hear a bell on your phone. We think this doorbell function is ideal for shopkeepers, so that you will be informed when someone enters your home.
In addition, you can indicate when the detector should detect. Only if you switch on the alarm system, or for example permanently if you mount it in a room that needs to be permanently monitored, such as a safe room.
The detector, like all Hikvision products of the AX Pro alarm system, runs on batteries of type CR123A and is therefore completely wireless. They are therefore easy to place anywhere without having to lay cables. The service life of the batteries supplied as standard is 5 years under normal use. After this time, they can easily be replaced for new ones for a few euros. These batteries are always available from stock. How to replace the batteries can be found in the manual of the PIR curtain detector DS-PDC15-EG2-WE.
The PIR curtain detector works in temperatures between -10 and +55 degrees Celsius. Outside these values the detection quality can decrease. The dimensions are 65,5mm x 103mm x 48,5mm and the weight is 128 grams.
- DS-PDP15P-EG2-WE Wireless internal PIR detector:
It has a larger detection angle of 85.9 degrees, and is designed to secure an entire room, not just a beam/line of detection.
- DS-PDD12P-EG2-WE Wireless Dual-Tech Detector:
This is similar to the internal PIR detector, but with an additional RADAR sensor to verify a detection received via PIR. PIR stands for passive infrared, and means that detection takes place on the basis of heat differences in the room. People cause such a difference, but air conditioners and fireplaces can also cause it. To prevent false alarms, you can alternatively choose a motion detector with a built-in radar module so that detected heat differences can be checked with radar. If the radar image detects a similar movement, an alarm will only be generated.
- DS-PDPC12P-EG2-WE Wireless PIR Camera Detector:
This is similar to the internal PIR detector, but has an extra camera to send images directly to your smartphone in case of an intrusion report. With this camera detector you are immediately informed who or what triggered the alarm, and you can immediately take appropriate action.
- DS-PDPG12P-EG2-WE Wireless PIR Glass Break Detector:
This is the same as the internal PIR detector, but has extra microphones to check for glass breakage. This means that when glass is broken, an alarm will sound sooner rather than just motion detection.
